And could not find any mention of software/apps outside the stock ones. But glad you found it.
However, it seems strange that such would cause the CPU to overheat. That sounds like a design or product flaw. My laptops can run at 100% CPU load for many hours. This model seems to buckle much too soon.
I own a Dell M5010, with an AMD Phenom 2 P920 quad core cpu. The laptop becomes very sluggish as in when i am typing something , the key presses are so delayed that the laptop seems to type by itself. This occurs mostly after playing a video game for about 2-15 minutes and ,while in game, if i press 2-4 keys simultaneously, the laptop doesnt recognize new commands (keys pressed) and makes beeping sounds until the 2-4 keys pressed are executed.
Problem appears even without playing games and it fixes itself for some time after rebooting OR logging off.
I'm thinking it is caused by the CPU not being able to do more than 1 action at a time because if i type a few words, i cannot alt tab, minimize or do anything else until it finishes typing.
Also, the beeping sound is coming out from the speakers.
What could be the problem?
